The Legend of the Candy Cane
By Lori Walburg
Illustrated by: James Bernardin

Review by: Lori Plach

     Some of the most popular books in the elementary schools for the last 30 years are very popular with the younger children of today. Who hasn't heard of that lovable however, very inquisitive little monkey named
Curious George. The Legend of the Candy Cane is not about Curious George but it is a story about a little girl whose curiosity gets the best of
her.
      There is alot of speculation going on in town when a stranger comes to a small prairie town and starts working inside a storefront whose windows were boarded up and the door locked for quite some time. The mayor hopes for a doctor, the young wives hope for a tailor, and the farmers hope for a trader. The children of the town have a secret wish.
     Lucy is the one person in the whole town who just cannot wait to see what the man is doing and does something about it. She offers to help the man. She hesitates at a crate. With Mr. Sonnemann's encouragement, she pulls out a glass jar. The secret is out after he opens a box labeled Confections. She helps him set up his store. He gives her a candy cane. He explains how a candy cane looks like a shepherd's staff. John Sonnemann tells how Jesus died to save us from our sins making us pure and holy in His sight.
     Mr. Sonnemann and Lucy set off to deliver a small gift and an invitation to every house in the town. On Christmas Eve, the candy store opens much to the delight of the children whose wish had come true. The townspeople shared more than just a store opening, they shared the story of Christ's miraculous birth, the misery of His death and the mercy of His Love.
     This book is meant to be enjoyed by the whole family ! Its a beautiful
story with awesome illustrations!
